What Did I Read During My Vacation 2016?

What Did I Read During My Vacation 2016?

Hello everyone!

So I thought you all would want to know what, and how much I read during my vacation. I can tell you, thanks to the so-so weather, I was able to read a whole mountain of books. Not only my own books, but also books from bookstores (either bought from a bookstore during my vacation, or while I was browsing a bookstore), Kinderboekenhuis, and a few on my ereader/phone. I am quite sad that my library books didn’t turn out to be such a hit. Most were pretty boring, or I just couldn’t get into them. But I read most of my own books.

Before I post pictures (and under that a list of books I also read, but don’t have pictures of, but I still want to let you all know what I read. I will also post where I read them/where I got them from), I first want to tell you how many I read, how many days my vacation was, how many pages, and what the average page and books a day was. I sure love those little statistics, and I know other bookworms do as well.

So hereby. drum roll I was on vacation for 19 days, and in those 19 days I read 62 books. Which means I read 3.26 books a day. My total page count was: 10.452 pages, which means an average of 168,5 pages per book. I am really really proud of what I managed to read. Yes, some were easy books (picture books/children’s books under 100 pages), but I am a bookworm, and every books counts for me. I don’t mind how big, or small, a book is. As long as I can read it. 😀

It is also a record for me, the past years (I have been counting since 2012) I read the following number (starting with 2012 and ending with this year): 31, 17, 27, 24, 62. You can clearly see if a vacation had good weather or not just by looking at the numbers.

On the pictures, if the book has a crown, it means I read it. No crown = not read, or tried and dropped very early on.
